I haven't formally introduced you to my new friend Chloé Paraty. Since I started following The Chloe Conspiracy a few years ago, I've been coveting this bag. It's perfect for me because: A) it's not covered in tons of tacky logos, B) it has both shoulder straps and handles, C) it looks the same from the front and the back, and D) it's a neutral, go-with-everything color. After actively scouring the internets for over 9 months for a pre-owned Paraty at a reasonable price (for me), I finally got lucky at the end of December and snagged this one! As you've seen, we've been best friends ever since!

In other news, I've added a Pinterest link to my "Connect" sidebar. Find me there, too!

Lastly, there's only two days left for my blog giveaway! No crazy rules or 
hoops to jump through required for entering! Open to everyone.
